Naples, ItalyMobsters arrested: Italian police this week arrested 29 suspected members of the Camorra, the mafia that dominates drug trafficking in and around Naples, and seized more than $140 million in assets. Hundreds of officers raided homes and businesses after six African immigrants and an Italian were killed in an alleged drug dispute with Camorra members last week. Three murder suspects were arrested. The Camorra is Italy’s oldest organized-crime gang, dating to around the 15th century. Many of its members fled to the U.S. during a 19th-century crackdown and founded the Italian-American Mafia. “The war against the Camorra will continue until it is won,” said Interior Minister Roberto Maroni.
